I used a device called Spidr to calibrate my new monitor, and it created a new color profile that was made the default automatically, but it did a really crummy job and everything is all blue. I can't figure out how to revert to the default color settings. If you know how please be very specific and step by step because I am very unfamiliar with Vista.
Also, I tried to do system restore, but it didnt work and i got an error message saying "an unspecified error occurred during system restore".
Right click the desktop and select "Personalise"
Select "Windows Colour and appearance" and go for the simple "Vista Basic" and Apply
Now select "Desktop background" and choose, for ease of use, Solid colors. Pick a colour of your choice, I would suggest one of the darker blues, and Apply.
Hopefully you now have your desktop back?
You can experiment, through the same windows, with the Theme and other background options. None are irreversible so just crash in!
That's not what I meant, I dont have a problem with the colors of the windows or other objects. The problem is with all the colors -- the entire monitor. I want to just go back to before i recalibrated it.
I searched around a bit but couldn't find anything called the "spidr". I did find a calibration device called Spyder 2, but I couldn't locate a manufacturer's website that might offer support. Is there anything on the device or the box that might tell you where to go for some help?
I've just be experimenting with the display settings. Have a look here, it may be the solutin?
1. Click on "Advanced Settings" in the "Display Settings" window.
2. Select the "Color Management" tab.
3. Click on the "Color Management..." button.
4. Make sure that the "Use my settings for this device" is checked.
5. Click on "Add".
6. Select the desired monitor profile from the list.
7. Click "OK".
8. Click on "Set as Default Monitor Profile".
9. Close all windows and reboot the PC. The profile and calibration settings will load at startup.
